Not a bad introduction book at all. It's biased. But that's just what's needed. Metaphysics is so messy without a biased position or privileged position it's impossible to introduce all the important questions, concepts, challenges and answers.

And it's easy enough for anyone who has just a little training of logical analysis of some sort. View 1 comment. Dec 19, Kevin Gibbons rated it it was amazing. Clear writing, penetrating and precise arguments, and immaculately structured exposition.
